VMware Monitoring

VMware, being one of the most sought after virtualization provider, enables businesses at all scales to setup virtual machines and servers. Although such contemporary hybrid networks offer a deluge of benefits, they can be quite a handful when it comes to managing them. Without a robust VMware monitoring software , such hybrid networks can succumb to performance degradation.

VMware monitoring becomes an important aspect for managing your IT environments. This is precisely why a business requires the right set of VMware monitoring tools to keep their VMware infrastructure in check. Also, monitoring VMware could help with capacity planning and forecasting, spot rogue VM's and much more. And so, VMware network monitoring is vital and requires a dedicated and comprehensive VM monitoring tool to be deployed.

VMware monitor with ManageEngine OpManager


VMware monitoring tool

using over 70 VMware performance monitors

OpManager’s VMware Monitor provides indepth, agentless monitoring of VMware-virtualized servers to give IT administrators a single fault and performance management console for entire server infrastructure - both physical and virtual. In addition to SNMP and WMI-based monitoring, OpManager leverages VMware APIs to help you:

With the new ability within OpManager to monitor our VMware ESXi hosts, we now have a quick portal to check in on our virtual machines/hosts and our physical servers as well, from one simple interface.

VMware monitoring with OpManager

VMware Server Monitoring — Monitor VMware servers right away (needs no configuration)

The VMware Monitor discovers and monitors without placing any overhead on your VMware servers - a single-step process that asks for the VMware server Host name & its HTTPS credentials is all that’s needed to discover, map and monitor all the VMs in a host.

VMware Performance Monitoring — Be alerted when resource consumption crosses critical thresholds

With OpManager's VMware performance monitoring feature, monitor VMware real-time and historical performance stats. Over 30 critical availability and performance monitors are pre-configured with thresholds, waiting for you to only assign notification profiles whenever they are crossed. Alert mechanisms include via SMS, email, web alarms, RSS feed and Twitter DMs. With OpManager's VMware network monitoring tool, you can even set-up auto-remediation actions through custom scripts e.g. restart a Windows service in the VM instance when CPU allocated crosses 90%.

Know which ESX servers are running low on resources

The ‘Top Hosts’ listing based on CPU consumption, Swap Memory consumption etc. brings immediate focus on the ‘unhealthy’ ESX servers. Administrators can then open up individual ESX server dashboards to further investigate on resources and VM inventory. The ‘recent alarms’ and ‘history reports’ found on the same snapshot page allow quick troubleshooting of problems e.g. an alarm on high CPU utilization leads to the reports showing which core CPU peaked and which VM contributed most at that time.

Quickly identify resource hungry VMs and take corrective action

OpManager's virtual machine monitoring capabilities help administrators monitor VMware infrastucture to quickly identify problematic VMs through the ‘top VM’ lists and then drill down to identify the offending process or application that is affecting application performance. With more than 70 VMware monitors such as CPU Wait/ Ready, Memory Balloon/ Shared/ Swapped/ Overhead etc. OpManager ensures identification and elimination of potential VM problems. Learn 5 actionable tips to prevent virtual machine sprawl.

VMware Reports — Get over 70 built-in reports on VMware infrastructure performance

OpManager's VMware server monitoring tool provides over 70 out-of-the-box reports on CPU, memory, disk and network utilization for every host and VM. These reports can be exported in pdf and xls format and come handy in troubleshooting utilization spikes(try the CPU utilization per VM report alongside CPU ready time reports), identifying resource utilization trends and in making the right capacity addition decisions. All the ‘top’ reports can be scheduled and automatically emailed to desired recipients.

OpManager also monitors your vSphere environment proactively, and ensures that you obtain the best performance out of your network. Visit our page on vSphere monitoring to know more on how OpManager can help you monitor your vSphere environment.
